Natural Stones

Known as dimension stone, natural stone, has varying characteristics which depends on the minerals present during their formation.  They are obtained inside the earth or are dug into the side of mountains.  They are very much textured in their raw state.  Though the detailed properties of the various types of natural stone, there is a certain shared characteristics that makes it easier to identify and that would be the fact that all natural stones are solid, hard, and rigid.  Similar with rocks, natural stones do not bend or have any yield to them.

Marble, as defined, is a metamorphic rock that maybe foliated or non-foliated and composed of recrystallized carbonate minerals, most commonly calcite or dolomite. Certain marbles have been valued for sculpture and architectural uses while some for decorative architecture.


Granite is defined as an igneous rock formed of interlocking crystals of quartz, feldspar, mica, and other minerals in lesser quantities. It is made up of 70% to 80% of the Earth’s crust. Such stone is used in buildings and other infrastructure.


Limestones are sedimentary rocks which are composed of calcium carbonate. It is ordinarily white but it maybe colored by impurities. Limestones are used in the manufacturing of glass and of cement which is one of the components of concrete.


Onyx is a banded variety of the oxide mineral chalcedony. Agate and onyx are both varieties of layered chalcedony that differ only in the form of the bands: agate has curved bands and onyx has parallel bands. The colors of its bands range from white to almost every color.


Most sandstone is composed of quartz or feldspar because these are the most common minerals in the Earth's crust. Like sand, sandstone may be any color, but the most common colors are tan, brown, yellow, red, grey, pink, white, and black.


Travertine is a form of limestone deposited by mineral springs, especially hot springs. Travertine often has a fibrous or concentric appearance and exists in white, tan, cream-colored, and even rusty varieties.
